look and feel for shoppers. >> susie: a deal to create a new defense giant is dead. earlier today, britain's b.a.e. systems and europe's e.a.d.s. called off their merger plans. both sides blamed concerns by european governments, especially germany, over how the potential tie-up would be structured. the deal between e.a.d.s. and b.a.e. systems would have created the world's biggest defense company by sales. some industry watchers say it could have spurred more consolidation among american defense companies. >> if this merger had come together it would have been pressure on the u.s. defense contractors to get together, to consolidate, as a counter balance to the new combination. but without the merger there is not a lot of pressure to consolidate. in fact, if we get a romney presidency there may be almost no pressure on defense contractors. susie: as for shares of the big u.s. defense contracrs today, they followed the broader market lower. boeing, general dynamics, lockheed martin and northrop grumman all down about 1%. >> susie: for many americans, >> susie: for many americans, co

. the cia, nsa, department of defense, they actually know what these attacks are at the border sometimes and we don't. so business is going to have to work together in this protect the american public so we can stop cyber crime. but it is a big deal, it is going to get worse. computers in ten years are going to be 100,000 times faster and so they'll be able to do calculations quicker and get through quicker. we're going to have to meet that in every way, shape or form. believe me -- banks i think are pretty good at this. we've been doing this a long time and there are rules and regulations and -- but we have to really stay in front of it. how many of you are worried about that? don't think of just the cyber security coming over the internet to you. like everything we do, we do authenticate you. we know more about that stuff than some you think. think about the person that joins your company from inside. that's where you're going to get it. >> thank you for that re-assuring point. there is a young lady in the second to last row -- >> create internal fire walls is how you protect yourself

. sandra: charlie, you see reason to play defense into the upcoming election. in fact, you say there is a way to say if romney wins or if president obama wins. what would that exactly be if there was various outcomes to the election, obviously? >> i think the chances are that capital i believe pretty much on strike for most of this year is going to see the potential for better economy, the first year of any administration doesn't tend to be that good of a year for the market or the economy. the market would definitely see the possibility to come off the sideline in the later part of next year into 2014. your previous guest talking about how a win for obama pretty much has been discounted, but if you see it, it'll be capital sitting on its hands for the next four years. david: if in fact obama wins the election, fiscal cliff is resolved, therefore you think all this cash, we are seeing great market again, but it has been on low volumes. the thing that would change into flooded the market? >> yes, i do. even more importantly is for romney to reverse obamacare. for small and midsi

departmenlabordepartment of mans numbers so fortune editor in chief weeks to the president defense. and unfortunately, a writer did a couple of nasty stories pointing out that he laid off 100,000 people in 20 years. though they have had plenty of layoffs as they can revenue 50% in a decade. and jack welch counter punches instead in the "wall street journal" liking the beating he's taken over this to soviet russia. jack welch also come under attack from former obama economic advisor saying on al gore current tv that it is absolutely and totally ridiculous to say somehow some political people change the numbers. this is crazy stuff. oh yeah? he himself questioned the honesty of the job numbers in the bush administration in '03 in "new york times" that they have been buying people off their employment rolls i and the government has cooked the books. in a counter tweet he said jack, you completely missed cited my old report, it was about those parties in congress not administration changing numbers. you know what, i did read it, i failed to see the distinction, sir. back to you, cheryl. cheryl: dennis, t
